Job Description

The Taatjes lab (Biochemistry Dept. University of Colorado-Boulder) is looking for creative and collaborative postdocs to join our team. Your projects will involve high-impact, biomedically relevant topics and will implement cutting-edge techniques, with opportunities to expand your expertise in biochemistry, cell biology, structural biology, molecular condensates, transcriptomics, or computational biology. Position is funded for up to 5 years.

Lab website: https://www.colorado.edu/lab/taatjes/

Lab overview: The Taatjes lab seeks to discover molecular mechanisms that control human gene expression, and how transcription and signaling pathways are altered during development and disease. We focus on sequence-specific, DNA-binding transcription factors and the Pre-Initiation Complex (PIC), which consists of Mediator, RNA polymerase II (pol II), TFIIA, TFIIB, TFIID, TFIIE, TFIIF, and TFIIH. We utilize a variety of experimental techniques that include biochemical, biophysical, molecular and cell biology approaches, as well as metabolomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics.

Submit postdoc application through this website or via email: taatjes@colorado.edu .

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant field and at least one first-author research paper. Please provide CV and cover letter with names and contact information for 2 professional references.
